 Literacy ! ? with UNESCO and GOOGLE at Frankfurt Bookfair!?
picture 8 Oct 2006 @ 08:30
Frankfurt's Book Fair offered some surprises. Google Literacy provides the ways and the means. We were surprised to find UNESCO inviting the new bound between words and maps. That the maps used were distorted came out in the Press Conference - more is interesting and available on request.  More >

picture picture 9 Sep 2006 @ 06:56
This is about Worlds Knowledge and how People are asked to get involved - Dropping Knowledge. Pls. see entries September 9, and October 26, 2006 entry in this Blog. It is about people using Ontologies developed the Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential, basing on Ozbekhan, Jantsch, Jungk, Welesly, and last not least Anthony Judge who could not make it to Berlin, but was the nucleus and milestone of the enterprise, at least as see it....

 UNITY in DIVERSITY : Dialog among Civilizations
picture picture 13 Jun 2006 @ 18:22
Kofi Annan invited the Dialog of Civilizations and before 1997 "Culture of Peace". We invite to see the 2 volumes as covered below with my little contribution on the dialog of civilizations and how to preserve Diversity in Unity a link to "Culture for Peace" strongly supported by Vladimir Lomeiko and Kofi Annans maybe central and first initiative when he became Secretary General VISION TELEVISION - Programming for People - From Cultural Rights to Cultural Responsibilities. Unfornately the central event sites are not on the web (any more) - so at least an anchor to dig deeper and see the depth and wisdom of these initiatives might help. Last not least I am happy announce with my co-author Sherryl our little contribution which was originally prepared for the 100th anniversary event for Bertalanffy in Vienna in 1997: Dialogue
toward Unity in Diversity.

 ONE EARTHDAY, many EARTHDAYS, OR EARTHDAY?
picture 24 Apr 2005 @ 09:44
The original Earthday was on March 21, 1970. The first Proclamation of Earth Day was by San Francisco, the City of Saint Francis, patron saint of ecology. Players at that time were [link] {link:http://www.earthsite.org/john.htm U. N. Secretary General U Thant, Margaret Mead, John Gardner, Robert Muller, ... more.

As the times with the first astronauts was right later many Earth Days were created, but only the original is on Equninox and so in line with the traditions of many other cultures.
This note is written on the US - California Earth Day 2005 to help us see the various approaches to celebrate, honour, and safe Mother Earth - and see how they combined could be stronger, or seperately serve different "clients"??  More >

This is Heiner Benking's News Log, a private-public diary presenting events, symposia and happenings in Berlin and elsewhere - my farings, foci, issues and concerns.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS PERSONAL BLOG an ARTISTIC and PERFORMATIVE MEDIA INTERVENTION !

The Log links to my work and interests and presents issues and special concern of maybe a very small group of "concerned, engaged generalist" - a Global Interest Group (GIG). This needs to be seen in contrast to the ubiquitous Specialized Interest Groups (SIGs), the "scientific" approach to organize subject areas and specialization and standardization and harmonization! of means, nomenclatures, and modes of thinking. My favorite stories in the WHOLENESS SEMINAR include:
BELA BANATHY: "GENESIS
OF GENERAL SYSTEMS THEORY"
and "IVAN HAVEL: Longing for Unified Knowledge" where a "specialist" runs into the founding session of the early foundations General Systems, mumbling "this is not my field" or where Ivan M. Havel expresses his search for other kinds of knowledge.
As a starter I also recommend to check my MINDPRINT site, where we add the need for HANDPRINTS and MINDPRINTS, as FOOTPRINTS are good to visualize and communicate numbers, densities or consumption per area, but are not sufficient to negotiate and "harmonize" across domains and communicate gains in different cultures, technologies, times,... in short: incompatible but relevant information and our work on dialog, peace, policy-making, and multi-modal, faceted issues and consequences.
What am I? This is a "well-packed" question for which I have not the or a single answer. Some called me an in-betweener, go-getter, facilitator, hub, marvel-hero, trim-tab, bricoleur, bricoleers??? - career designeer, .... Some even "hank" which I disliked or Story which I liked very much !!
I have no single answer as I feel we need to walk the talk and sing and dance Life ! in spectra and fields in multiple embodied spaces.
To nebulous an answer? I am sorry but I do not go for overclaims and oversimplifications, under-complex and over-simplistic approaches with clan-think mindsets about real issues in clear contexts!
